  1. Note: See notes under Table 4
  2. Note: The interaction terms R*[] are interaction between a region dummy variable R and the other regressors
  3. In columns 1–3, the dummy variable R takes the value 1 for ASIA and 0 for the other region mentioned in the column head. For instance in column 1, R takes the value 1 for ASIA and 0 for MENA. In columns 4–7, R takes the value 1 for OECD and 0 for other regions indicated in the column head. For instance in column 5, R takes the value 1 for OECD and 0 for MENA. See Table 4 for the description of other variables. All regression include time dummy variables. *, **, and *** indicate statistical significance at the 10, 5, and 1 % level, respectively
